Christmas Card Class

I wanted to share the cards that we made in Katy's Christmas Card class on Wednesday morning.  She is a talented lady who loves to create with Stampin' Up! products and she loves to knit.  So, she invited her knitting friends to the Cat/Art Studio to enjoy a morning of card making.  Some stampers and some never-have-stamped-before ladies who choose Christmas cards and enjoyed the results.  Here are some friend pictures ~

Tuesday Project Sheet

The CHRISTMAS BARN BUNDLE is on page 28 in the current mini catalog.  The images in the stamp set are special to me because my family would always travel from home in Ohio to visit our cousins in Indiana ~ every Thanksgiving and Easter.  I have wonderful childhood memories of those trips and this set brings it all back.  I even remember a sleigh ride (included in the set) in the snow!  Enjoy.

Share & Tell

Remember when you were in kindergarten or first grade and every Monday was SHARE & TELL?  I always wondered what to bring and what to say.  Not any more because I want to share some lovely birthday cards that I received last week (wonderful cards & wonderful birthday!)..
